Difficult to disagree with the high rating here. Not the cheapest place, but considering where it is and the hard work and hospitality that the staff put in, pretty good value. All contact prior to our visit was so friendly and helpful. The setting is everything you think it will be. No wi-fi,(if you need it to book etc, you... More

I've stayed here twice now and the destination in its own is beautiful and well worth the trip. The accommodation is comfortable, homely and cleanliness is of a high standard. What stands out the most are the welcoming and helpful hosts. Carrot cake and a cuppa upon arrival is just one of the things they do to add the personal... More

I've stayed here before & just stopped for coffee & cake when hiking through. The owners are wonderful & their creative energy can be seen everywhere on thus beautiful property. It's cosy - rain or shine. The food is local, tasty & prepared with love. The best place to stay if you want comfort & nature

This is undoubtedly the best I have experienced for a long, long time. Curtesy, hospitality, friendliness and charm at its best. One can take ones own food, cooking facilities are tenoutoften, you can choose from a very well planed and selection of meals menu and it's prepared to perfection. Nothing seems to be a bother. A "darling-family" of Norma, Tom,... More

Our host Tom was incredibly kind and helpful and made this a memorable stay! You can choose from various room types, we were lucky to be the only guests and stayed in one of the "Upstairs Chalet", a fantastic... More

Had a fantastic stay at the Lodge, greeted by Tom, Norma and Duncan with a cuppa and a slice of carrot cake "to die for" after our first tramp into the Lodge. Place is amazing and had a fantastic time. They had the hot tub ready for us which was a godsend for the muscles. The chalets were lovely, bed... More

The hosts - Tom, Norma & Duncan - are simply lovely. They are top-notch hosts and make an incredible effort to ensure the stay is comfortable and relaxing. The setting is delightful and the detailing in the accommodation is best seen in person. Very comfortable beds and delicious food.
